Dear 100 Hour Board,
Because I like to live life on the edge, I eat raw cookie dough all the time. I'm not likely to stop anytime soon (gotta keep up my rep of being a daredevil risk taker.) However, as I baked cookies this morning I began to wonder... if there actually was salmonella in my cookie dough, how long would it be from the time I eat the dough until the time I begin to manifest symptoms?
As a side note, have any of you ever suffered negative consequences from eating raw dough?

The onset time for salmonellosis is 12 to 72 hours after infection, and it usually last four to seven days.
I eat raw cookie dough. So far, so good. So very, very good.
